Finished some structural work under the deck. At Browndog's suggestion I contacted the Buddy Davis manufacturer to get a couple of dimensions for the house. They generously supplied them.

Tweaked the house profile a bit more. Side window profile was incorrect. Did some more uninteresting structural work. Deck beams are a bit low so shimming required there.

House Window


I like the corrected profile better than the original profile, myself. The corrected version looks more sweeping and less hard cornered. Keep up the good work................

It's pretty amazing what just a small adjustment does to significantly change how the eye sees it.

Looks great bill
I spent the day at coastguard beach
And a Carolina style convertible went by and it was impressive at speed with the hull flair and how it was cutting through the chop

I just discovered this thread and am watching with interest!
I know you're way past it now, but If I may, what is your method for determining and keeping the camber consistent with the forward deck beams?
Thanx

If your from New England area you should be using the correct terms,, such as the sheer clamp

and you are trying to put camber in the deck beams..... Good luck..

Just to make sure I understand the question, are you interested in keeping the deck beam camber constant as deck beams are installed progressing toward the stem?
